CBF released this morning the VAR audio in Flamengo’s 3-2 victory against Santos, yesterday, at Maracanã, for the Brazilian Championship. Peixe left the field complaining a lot about the referee André Luiz de Freitas Castro, who didn’t give a supposed penalty by Matheuzinho in Camacho, in the 48th minute of the first half, when the score was 0 to 0 – following the move, Pedro opened the scoring for the red-black.
“The foot stops to the side and he trips over his foot”, says Adriano Milczvski, the match’s VAR.
In the audio, it is possible to hear a conversation between Adriano and Luciano Roggenbaum, VAR assistant, and they conclude that there was ‘no impact’ for the penalty.
Check out the dialog:
Hadrian Milczvski: “The leg is already stationary. The foot stops to the side and he trips over the foot. He doesn’t quite hit it, right?”
Luciano Roggenbaum: “Is this contact without any impact, Adriano?”
Adriano Milczvski: “No impact at all”
Luciano Roggenbaum: “Perfect”
Luciano Roggenbaum: “That’s right. A camera. Watch this impact, Adriano”
Adriano Milczvski: “I don’t see any impact here. The leg is already stationary. There’s a contact there. It comes back a little bit. That knee with knee there”
Luciano Roggenbaum: “And André is on top of the play too, you can see. Watch André watching the play well”
Hadrian Milczvski: “The leg is already there. As he turns this way, he’s going to bump into the defender. For me, normal throw”
